Russian Salad

Russian Salad | The Baking Beauties

This recipe for Russian Salad was submitted by my Mom. It is a fantastic twist to a regular jello salad. The flavours are really great, and the sour cream layer  doesn’t make it sour, but rather, makes it very creamy. Delicious!

Russian Salad
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 package unflavoured gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 large container Cool Whip, defrosted
  • 1 can blueberry or cherry pie filling (I used sliced strawberries and glaze)
  1. Boil together water, sugar and gelatin.
  2. Add vanilla and sour cream. Allow to cool.
  3. Add Cool Whip and mix thoroughly. Let stand 2-4 hours.
  4. Then add topping of either cherry or blueberry pie filling.

    Very pretty! Is the gelatin unflavored? I’m guessing it is because the bottom part looks so white.

    You are correct, Linda! Unflavoured gelatin is what was used. I corrected it now. Thanks! :)
